The average half-life of psilocin is 50 minutes.8 The half-life of a substance is how long it takes for half of the drug to be eliminated from the body.
It generally takes five to six half-lives for a substance to be entirely eliminated from the system. In the case of psilocin, after three hours, about two-thirds of a dose has been eliminated through the kidneys in the urine.
Psilocybin is metabolized more quickly by some people than others. Dosage is a large factor, and so is frequency of use, weight, and age. The experience is highly determined by the person’s mindset and their physical setting, often referenced together as “set and setting.”
A 2017 study of healthy adults found that the psilocin levels peak after about 80 minutes, corresponding with the average peak in effects after 90 minutes, but this varies across individuals.
The immediate effects of using psilocybin wear off in six to 12 hours, though most people report continuing to feel the effects until they sleep and a “glow” the next day.
The standard five- and nine-panel drug tests ordered by most drug testing companies do not typically include tests for psilocybin, but some companies do offer urine tests for psilocybin and one of its metabolites, psilocin, that could be purchased by an employer or probation office. Only small traces of the drug are detectable by a urine test for up to 24 hours after ingestion.
Blood testing for psilocybin is much less common, but it may happen under some conditions. However, the detection window is very brief, which means that the test must be administered within hours after use.
Like many other substances, magic mushrooms can be found in hair follicles for up to 90 days.8 However, such tests may require larger hair samples in order to find detectable amounts of the substance.
A Psilocybe species was known to the Aztecs as teōnanācatl (literally “divine mushroom” – agglutinative form of teōtl (god, sacred) and nanācatl (in Náhuatl) was reportedly served at the coronation of the Aztec ruler Moctezuma II in 1502. Aztecs and Mazatecs referred to psilocybin as genius, divinatory, and wondrous mushrooms, when translated into English.
Bernardino de Sahagún reported the ritualistic use of teonanácatl by the Aztecs when he traveled to Central America after the expedition of Hernán Cortés.

After the Spanish conquest, Catholic missionaries campaigned against the cultural tradition of the Aztecs, dismissing the Aztecs as idolaters, and the use of hallucinogenic plants, together with other pre-Christian traditions, was quickly suppressed.
The Spanish believed the mushroom allowed the Aztecs and others to communicate with devils. Despite this history the use of teonanácatl has persisted in some remote areas.
Drug tests of psilocybin and psilocin involve screening urine samples using high-performance liquid chromatography or tandem mass spectrometry. The report is usually made available between four to eight days. The more you ingest, the longer the psilocybin remains and can be detected.
Drinking water can speed up the elimination of psilocybin, but not in a way that is significant for people trying to avoid detection on a drug test. The only way to get psilocybin out of your system is to discontinue use and allow your body time to metabolize and eliminate the substance.
Use caution whenever handling wild mushrooms. Make sure that you get all that you pick yourself looked over by an expert before eating them to ensure proper identification.
Even experienced mushroom hunters can mistake a highly poisonous one for the one they intended to gather. The poisoning can result in catastrophic liver damage and death unless there is immediate access to a liver transplant.
If you suspect mushroom poisoning, call 911 or poison control right away at 800-222-122. Don’t wait until you experience symptoms.
While physical overdose on most correctly identified species of psilocybin-containing is not likely, some people do have what is called a “bad trip,” in which they experience confusion, loss of awareness, and exposure to challenging psychological material.
A bad trip is largely a product of set and setting, but can also be an indicator of a need for more in-depth psychological support.
Many people find that bad or difficult trips are minimized through attending to their basic physical needs before and during the experience, keeping overstimulation to a minimum, using lower doses, and checking in with a trusted friend.
That said, psychedelic experiences may bring psychological material into your awareness that you find challenging, and it is also helpful to be aware of that in advance and have a plan for working with it.
If you are someone with a trauma disorder or other ongoing psychological condition, speak to your psychologist before taking psilocybin, shroom.
Psilocybe cubensis is a species of psychedelic mushroom whose principal active compounds are psilocybin and psilocin. Commonly called shrooms, magic mushrooms, golden halos, cubes, or gold caps, it belongs to the fungus family Hymenogastraceae and was previously known as Stropharia cubensis.
